The image is from our North Carolina Zoo African Lion habitat in Asheboro, NC.. I used one of my images of the male lying down to develop this image. I have hand painted and digitally altered this image. Since his paw was out, put a cross in it. n Christianity, the Lion of Judah epithet is used to refer to Jesus Christ, but that's not where the relevance and meaning of this symbol ends. The Lion of Judah is an ancient symbol. The sign represents the Israelite tribe of Judah throughout the Old Testament of the Hebrew Bible. The symbol also features on the emblem of Jerusalem, recognizing the original tribe and inmates of the Biblical Yehuda or Judah. Traditionally, the tribe is represented by a lion. The symbol dates back to the tribe's patriarch Jacob, who referred to his son Judah as 'Gur Aryeh' or 'the young lion' (Genesis 49:9). The reference appears in the Bible in the Book of Revelation 5:5, in the New Testament. The symbol is read and understood as a direct reference to Jesus, where he is regarded as the 'lion of the tribe' and 'Root of David'.
